Final Fantasy XIV PS3 Update – Interview, New Details

When it was first launched back in 2010, Final Fantasy XIV for PC was criticized by players and the media, and eventually the planned PS3 version was postponed. Since then, Square Enix decided to reshuffle the leading developers of the game, with Naoki Yoshida now acting as Director and Producer. His challenge is to helm the 2.0 version of Final Fantasy XIV, which is a re-imagination of the original release. It will mark a new beginning for the game when it gets launched this winter, coinciding with the release of the anticipated PS3 version. (Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, Naoki Yoshida, PS3)

Whoa and it's coming straight from Sony's blog.

You know, you really got admire Square's commitment to fixing this game. Any other company would've abandoned this game or made it F2P to try to recoop their loses, but Square remade the game from the ground up--they even remade the game engine, and all the content inside of it, and they are adding new content as well.

FFXIV actually gives me more faith Square than anything else they're doing at the moment.

Yep same here. That guy is making FFXIV golden and has re-kindled my faith in the game. May not be the complete successor to FF11 but he sure is making it pretty close while keeping it fresh and new.

They actually did for a bit make the game have no subscription fee to keep people playing while they were overhauling everything.

just imagine that the next generation of consoles is coming soon, so players only have like what? only 3 years to play?

It will work on PS4 too, and I see no reason why it should not.

SE has put too many efforts ( time + money ) in this project to let the game die on console in about 3 years.

what? are you mad? ff11 came out ten years ago on ps2 and its still running with regular updates and WoW came out in 2004 and 8 years later its still going.

Also Se can easily make it on ps4 and the PC version has been out for 2 years. MMos unless they do not have a lot of subs dont fo away because consoles do. theres a lot of people on ps2 playing ff11 as we speak.

MMO games are most likely to be ported for the further next gen systems of Sony.

Like DUST 514 it will cross platform connectivity with PS3/PS Vita and PS4.

Final Fantasy 14 ( the proper version ) coming soon for PS3 ppl!

Great stuff.

Is it just me, or is Square only doing announcements for remakes, next gen and damage control for past current releases? Also sudden announcements for formally unannounced games.

Those graphics look pretty incredible. I'm excited for this on the PS3.
ShadowKingpin  +   1266d ago
I'm really excited to FINALLY get my hands on this. I don't have a powerful enough computer at the current moment, so PS3 will have to be my alternative.
Qrphe  +   1266d ago
I can't believe the haven't given up on this game. I'll probably try it because of everything they've been putting into it.
